Dedicated to Sharon Bezaly. 'A monumental piece, in effect a symphony for flute and orchestra, intense, magical and poetic with its awakening to a new dawn, a reconciliation beyond dispair' (Bezaly).'The concerto covers some profound areas, its roots lying in a collection of poetry of life's fragility and transience, as well as the death of his father and illness of his beloved dog' (Gramophone).
